    I love looking at your pieces, there are always so many wonderful details to see! The bird is fabulous as is the jasper and I love how your wrapped circle looks like a birds nest with an egg in it. I also adore the little “detours” you make like splitting into two strands or changing the wrap on the pearls. Great job as always!

    Thanks so much!!! Gail, this one took me quite a while because I knew how I wanted it to feel but I had to do a lot of rearranging to get to that point. :)
